@ZombiePie I'm tempted to say no there, though I do appreciate that their names are in similar spirit.

@Kamui97 I had considered Fate! Lancer is in-line with "Swordsman", unless a Lancer class was ever also named Lance I think that's a no-go. Saber is more dubious, as its both a job-description and weapon. Excalibur is nowhere near a saber, but I'll count it on technicality.

@Chamurai Absolutely! Good catch.

@zombiepie: Good lord, is that so? What I've seen of the reaction has been extremely mercurial, so imagining it being twice as bad elsewhere is a scary thought. I guess it makes sense though, with what little I knew about the series before looking into it lately, my perception has been that Bridget was a bit of a mixed bag over here while she was the long-running fan favorite in Japan.

My bad on the Fate fighting games though, I scrolled through the franchise list and somehow completely missed 'em.

@zombiepie: Are there any Fate/ fighting games? It seems unthinkable that there wouldn't be, given Melty Blood, but I can't find any, and if they exist Astolfo doesn't seem to be in them.

Keighley's made it plenty clear that his end goal is to "legitimize" gaming, in the vain, desperate, and deeply outdated way a teen might be pissed because his parents told him he can't play Halo all day. His line has been "legitimizing video games" since he was 14 with Cybermania, and I think his understanding of how to do that really was shaped by E3 and his time on the VGAs, which TGAs are mostly a toned-down extension of. That's why he's obsessed with celebrity cameos, "the big three", dubious auteur figures, appearing in movie theaters, and overtaking the Oscars, because they're big showy ambitions that maybe turn non-dedicated heads to go "oh this show is the one everyone's at" or "hear the Rock was on some video game thing?".

But more than that, Keighley obviously wants to elevate himself with it. He hosts the shows, does the behind the scenes work, and is the main force marketing it, so when the show succeeds he succeeds with it. Why wouldn't he be as shameless and desperate as possible when doing so gets him paid and puts his name in front of more people? And playing Good Buddies with the Rock, Kojima, Reggie, and all the other big video game names just furthers that. You don't get a hat of literally your own face in Among Us without wanting to make "Geoff Keighley" into a brand, and I think there's a world not-too-divorced from our own where kids run around in Fortnite as Geoff Keighley, and 20-somethings have Geoff Keighley Funko Pops tucked away on some shelf.

@gendergenerator: I didn't either for a while, since it was originally just called kuso. According to Steam they've since changed it to "LOVE 2: kuso", probably for that reason.

Unrelated, neat to see LOVE getting some love on this site.

"What would that do at a press conference? ... If they revealed a new Deadly Premonition here."

@movethebongos: It certainly isn't perfect, but the GB wiki was mainly chosen for how readily it presents information at a glance (and because the conversation began with a GB wiki entry.) I still think it's the right choice, however, since the GB wiki tends to be a bit more granular than Wikipedia, for better or for worse.

That said, going by that list way oversells it. That lists every variant of Tetris ever made, including games like Welltris, Hatris, Tetris Battle Gaiden, Tetris Effect, and Puyo Puyo Tetris. While those are all similar to Tetris, they're firmly their own games, and thus would be separate entries in this list if any of them had enough platform releases to qualify.
